Re: having sound issues

Gene
 

What do you want to do with the controls? Are you using the sound card for play only? If all you want to do is play and not use features such as an equalizer, you don't have to install the software. You can just plug in the sound card and use it.

I would avoid the creative ones. There are reports online that the driver software has bugs under 10, and that the direct mode, whith enhancements disabled, isn't as neutral as it should be. Moreover, the enhancements would mess with NVDA or JAWS, and be annoying.

Converting video from AVI to MKV

Steven Johnson
 

Good day everyone.  I want to convert a bunch of TV shows from AVI to MKV H365 format to play on my wife’s Vizio television’s built-in media player.  Could someone recommend a good, speech-friendly file converter?  VLC doesn’t offer the MKV format in its list of conversion file types.  Thanks in advance.


Re: Looking for an easy to use accessible .html to .txt batch converter

I'm having an issue  with that program.  I select the files to convert, (using the file path, making sure the checkbox for all sub folders is checked, and placing the *.html and *.txt in the paths and then click convert.
 
when the program is done, all the text files are blank.
 
Any suggestions?

Re: Query about Recording with Mixers

Joe Giovanelli
 

Good morning, Debbie,

Your question is one which is very difficult to answer. A lot depends on what you plan to record.

Here is basic information about mixers. Mixers permit the person to connect various devices to it. They can have connections of two or 16 or who knows how many.

The mixer is then connected to a recorder. The c onnections which put audio into the mixer are called "inputs." The connections which go to the recorder are known as outputs.

If one of the things you will record is your voice, then at least one of the inputs must be connected to a microphone. If you are to record the audio coming from your computer, you must connect the computer to at least one more of the mixer's inputs.

If you plan to record your keyboard, then at least one input of the mixer has to be connected to the output jack on the keyboard.

There is much, much more to this discussion and there is no way for me to write it all down. Books have been written about how to record sound. For example, you need to know how much sound should feed into the recorder. Too much sound, or signal, will cause distorted or poor sound. Too little signal will mean that the sound is softer than it should be for comfortable listening.

You have to ask questions such as" How loud should my voice be relative to the sound of the computer or your keyboard.


Once you have all of the equipment needded to make your recordings, it will take a great deal of experimentation to learn the best way to do these things.

I wish I could offer mmore help, but I hope this will at least give you a feel for the things involved in making good recordings.

Joe Giovanelli, W2PVY

Re: having sound issues

Please do. I just purchased a creative sound blaster Audigy. I didn't bother installing the software because it works fine without it as I am just running my speakers through the audio line out, and my Yamaha mixer through the line in, but if the control panel is accessible I might take a look at it.

Freedom Scientific Extends Free JAWS License Offer Until August 31

Gerald Levy
 

Great news!!  Freedom Scientific has extended its free home license offer for JAWS until August 31.  The offer was originally due to expire on June 30.
So for anyone who already has a free license, you can now extend it until August 31, at which time you can purchase a one-year license for $90 or maybe
even extend it yet again for free, depending on the national health crisis situation.  For those of you who are using another screen reader and would like
to try JAWS 2020 in full, unrestricted mode until August 31 absolutely free, this is another opportunity.  Call FS at 800-444-4443 for details.

for a start, if you are using the same computer to do both the recording, and the demo of what ever, you should seriously think about using 2 soundcards, as this will make life a lot easier.

you can then connect a mic to one of the mic channels on your mixer, and the output from which ever soundcard you are going to use for the demo of what ever to one of your stereo line-in channels on your mixer.

you then connect your main or tape outs on your mixer to the line-in on the other soundcard, which you will be using to do the recording. then, once you have set all of your levels up, (if you are using a mic, using headphones rather than speakers would probably work better for this), you should be about ready to go.

websites use and I go back up to read the message or whatever info I want to
read Jaws doesn't read it. This also happens when I send someone a message on
Facebook. Also when I erase a letter in such a situation Jaws doesn't tell me
what I erased it just says blank. Now, are these things that can be changed? If
so, where do I go and how do I change these settings? I'd really like to be able
to read the message and info that I put in the forms before sending and also the
Facebook messages before sending and also know what I'm erasing. I'm running the
latest Edge, Jaws 18 and Windows 10. Thanks for any help that anyone can provide
me!!!!!!

They are over the head and your ears are fully enveloped by the ear pieces.  Very comfortable.  The volume controls are on the right ear piece.  The button layout is below.
Headset:
When looking at the right side / right ear piece, where all the buttons are, they are laid out this way
Top left, Bass Boost, Top right Surround Sound.
Bottom left, volume down, Bottom right, volume up.
The little button on the back of the ear piece is the power button.  Power turns off after 3 minutes of no audible signal.  Press the power button for
3 seconds to turn the headset back on.
 
Transmitter / Charging Stand:
On the front of the stand there are 2 buttons.  The top button is surround sound, it's off by default, but press it 1 time for low, press it 2 times for
high, & press it again for off.
The bottom button is for bass boost.  It's off by default, & it toggles between on / off
On the back of the transmitter / stand is the Audio Input selector switch, in the up position it's, digital, in the down position it's, analogue, & I need
for it to be on the analogue option
position for my headset to work.

Mike,
Are these over the head , and if so, are the earpieces the ones which surround the ear or do they sit on the front of the ear?

Is there such a thing as wireless headphones that are not bluetooth? I would like them to use with computer to hear screen reader, but I don't like the lag that my Bluetooth ear piece has.
